Muslim travellers can look forward to more halal menu options on board Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA) flights from July 1 onwards.

The first new meal offering will be a Japanese style chicken curry.

The light meal option will be available on First Class flights between Tokyo and Europe and Singapore, on First Class Tokyo departures to North America, in Business Class travel between Tokyo and Jakarta, as well as the upcoming Tokyo-Kuala Lumpur route.

In September, ANA Business Class and Economy Class passengers will have the choice of organic "Sunpu Aoido Shizuoka Green Tea" - the first green tea in Japan to receive halal certification.

The airline will also begin serving a high-quality, non-alcoholic sparkling rose wine in all First Class cabins. The wine will also be available for a limited time in the Business Class cabin of the upcoming Tokyo-Kuala Lumpur flight, to commemorate the launch of the service in September.

All in-flight meals on Kuala Lumpur departures to Tokyo will be halal-certified.

Currently, ANA passengers can enjoy halal-certified 'arare' rice crackers on all international flights which was introduced earlier in June.

The airline has partnered Brahim's Holdings Berhad to offer halal-certified meals on their international flights since Jan 2014.

Through the partnership, ANA Catering Service, which is responsible for all in-flight meals and beverages for ANA Group, has obtained certification to produce halal cuisine at its facility in Kawasaki, Japan.
